Caption: Digestive system. Illustration showing the human digestive system on a female figure. Food from the mouth passes down the oesophagus (tube going through the chest to the abdomen). The liver (dark brown) and stomach (at right of the liver) are two organs of the upper abdomen. Food passes from the oesophagus into the stomach. Here it is churned up for further digestion and nutrient absorption in the small intestine (coiled, lower abdomen). Bile from the liver is released to aid the breakdown of fat in the small intestine. Water is reabsorbed in the large intestine or colon (shown circling the small intestine). Finally, faeces are expelled through the anus (base of abdominal cavity).
